TAKING THE PLUNGE

I’ve always loved having smaller assets because they work really well with the clothing I like to wear…and I can get away without wearing a bra as was the case with this dress (ahh so comfy!!).

This Reformation dress is the right amount of sexy and sophistication. It has a plunging neckline, yet it also has a midi length so that way I don’t show too much skin. However, even with my small ta-tas I still had to keep an eye on my cleavage and make sure there were no boobies popping out! Besides that little issue, this dress is honestly so comfortable and really an easy way to feel like a million bucks!

I’m such a huge fan of the Reformation brand, not only because they make killer clothes, but because the brand is also eco-friendly. If you aren’t familiar, I suggest you check out their site. Their clothing is a little pricey, but totally worth it. Trust me, I own at least 30 Reformation pieces!! And for those of you who aren’t like me and have an ample bosom, they just released their second collection designed for women with C-DD breasts!! Shop away!

P.S. Here’s a little secret for those of you on a budget. If you check eBay, you can usually find pre-owned Reformation pieces in amazing condition for a fraction of the price! That’s where I got this dress for $83 (originally $148).

OOOH, DAISY, DAISY

Flowers and me go together like peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, Timon and Pumba. I love looking at flowers. I love photographing flowers and I love wearing clothing with floral prints!

This outfit was all about the daisy. I paired my daisy Lilou top from Reformation with my daisy button-up skirt from Brandy Melville and I really loved the floral on floral action! And when you pair two printed items together you don’t have to worry much about accessories because there’s already so much going on!

That’s what I liked most about this ensemble — it’s not-so-simple simplicity. Yes, I realize that sounds confusing, but I am only wearing three things: a top, a skirt and booties. That seems pretty simple to me, yet the addition of printed items makes the outfit exciting and interesting. So there you go. Here is my not-so-simple yet simple outfit. :)

HAY THERE

Here I am once again wearing a CHRISTY DAWN dress. I just can’t help myself. I love all of her designs and I feel the need to scoop them up as soon as I see them because they tend to sell out quickly — like within a few hours!! I love how I can just throw this dress on, add a pair of cute shoes and be set. This dress is made from cupro and Christy describes it as a “silk-like fiber derived from cotton seeds,” that is “similar to rayon but breathes like cotton and has the most amazing hand.” She was not lying! This dress is so soft and light. It’s amazing!!

I actually got lucky on this one. The dress had been sold out, but I kept checking back everyday (several times a day actually) to see if anymore became available and lucky enough one did!! So I wasted no time and bought it. If I hadn’t I probably would not have gotten the chance to own this beauty and that would have been a darn shame.

THE BOA

This was the first piece I ever bought from Reformation and I have been addicted ever since. Seriously, I probably pay the lease on their L.A. sewing factory!

I can’t even remember how I came across the site, but I know that when I saw this top I got butterflies in my stomach (that’s a sure-fire sign that I love something.) I don’t wear the top as much as I’d like to, mainly because I’m always worried a boob will pop out since I can’t easily wear a bra with this beauty, but the Boa top paired well with these River Island pants. The top is simple while the pants have a lot going on. They really balance each other out.

Honestly, if I had to pick one outfit that would describe me and my style this would be it. I’m a sucker for neutrals and am always drawn to anything white, yet I have an infatuation with rainbows and bright colors. Being able to put both together in one outfit is so truly me!!

WHITE ON BLUE

Whenever I pass a graffiti-adorned or spray-painted wall I’m instantly drawn to it. And I especially loved the color and creativity of the wall in these photos. It was the perfect backdrop for my relatively simple outfit. The top is from one of my go-to brands — Brandy Melville. I especially loved this top because it was a thicker knit material, which is a bit different than the typical paper thin tees from Brandy. The pants were from a Nordstrom Rack in Seattle and they are oh so comfy. The shoes on the other hand left me with quite a few blisters, but hey fashion is pain!

Earlier in the day I had stopped by the open studios at 52 O Street. I spent many days in that building when I interned for Virginia Arrisueño of DeNada, but I never realized how many talented artists, designers and creative minds call the building home. My fiancé and I explored nearly every studio and I left feeling truly inspired. I also left with a DeNada shawl too!!
